Bio/Research

My research focuses on the environmental history of tropical crops and commodities, especially in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. I look at the interplay between economy and environment by studying the origins of epidemic crop diseases. My current research project is a global history of the coffee rust (Hemileia vastatrix), a catastrophic crop epidemic that spread across the world's coffee zones between 1870 and 1980. My other research and teaching interests include global history, commodity history, the history of science, technology, and medicine, disease and history, the history of natural disasters, and Latin American history.
